I believe the place may have been haunted in the past but nothing is happening here. Great to look around to explore the history but this is it. Would be great turned into a pub

I have known of the Ancient Ram for over 30 years and have been an occasional visitor throughout that period . The owner John Humphries is a 'character ' to say the least and has a wide range of interests from trains (he used to be an engine driver) and motorcycles . Bearing in mind that this is his 'home'...

Fantastic place with a lot of history, and John's stories are great. Claimed to be one of the most haunted places in England ! If your not a paranormal investigator it is well worth a visit, but be prepared for the quirky

We went with a paranormal group and had some great activity. Table levitation in the barn, the Ouija board was very active as well as the k2 meters and white noise spirit box. Did meet John but felt like the Inn had so much more to offer, far too much hoarding prevented us going into some areas/rooms. Overal I did... More

Know what you're getting into before going here. The history of the Ancient Ram Inn, is no doubt, fascinating. We saw John sitting outside and I went over to chat with him. He offered to take us through the house and told us about the history and the reputation for being one of the most haunted places in England. Well,... More

I have visited The Ram 5 times, each with a paranormal investigation group. This place is often reputed to be one of the most haunted buildings in Britain, and is exceptionally popular among paranormal groups. The first thing potential visitors should realise - this is somebodies home, and as such, isn't run like a tourist attraction. No organisations (such as... More

My partner and I were house hunting in W-U-E and couldn't miss a visit to the Ram, which we'd heard a lot about. The building does have an evil atmosphere, and that's coming from my partner and I who are two sceptics. The rooms I found most creepy were at the bottom of the stairs, the landing at the top...
